Hmm - this is a tricky one :(  One way might be to add 
a Python script named 'PUT' to your ZClass, which calls
an alias that you could add to your subclass that calls
that right PUT. Non-optimal, but might do the trick.

<python script, arguments REQUEST, RESPONSE>
  return self.my_PUT(REQUEST, RESPONSE)
</python script>

class MyBaseClass(...):

  def my_PUT(self, REQUEST, RESPONSE):
    # new alias to call the right PUT. you could
    # also just rename your custom PUT, but this 
    # example tries to preserve the contract of
    # your base class in case something else 
    # depends on it...
    return MyBaseClass.PUT(self, REQUEST, RESPONSE)

    # existing custom PUT handler

We were trying to make life easier for the majority by 
adding FTP/DAV support to ZClasses, but as you point out 
this may cause difficulties for folks who are trying to 
handle certain HTTP methods themselves already :(  

I wonder if a better way to go might be to provide a 
mixin that people can use when defining a ZClass that 
adds the default FTP/DAV support? Then I suppose that 
people with existing ZClasses would then be mad (because
there would be no easy way to add that support to existing
